Where on earth is this year going.?

Dont forget some of us have made a pact to see the Auld new year Oot and the New Year IN

AT WAIPU. I will keep reminding you.

but see here

http://www.breambay.co.nz/blog/

and also

www.waipumuseum.com/html/TartanWeekProgramme.htm

both these websites are fascinating.

AND of course i bring you some goodies new in from St Justin

see front page my website right here

http://celt.co.nz/

with exciting new items copied from the Staffordshire Hoard.

The Staffordshire Hoard (wikipedia article) is an unparalleled treasure find dating from Anglo-Saxon times. Both the quality and quantity of this unique treasure are remarkable. The story of how it came to be left in the Staffordshire soil is likely to be more remarkable still.

The Hoard was first discovered in July 2009. The find is likely to spark decades of debate among archaeologists, historians and enthusiasts.

Leslie Webster, Former Keeper, Department of Prehistory and Europe, British Museum, has already said:

This is going to alter our perceptions of Anglo-Saxon England… as radically, if not more so, as the Sutton Hoo discoveries. Absolutely the equivalent of finding a new Lindisfarne Gospels or Book of Kells.

So there you go. i believe more stuff will be forthcoming as it is available to be copied and we will keep you posted.
